Dow Corning to Put Automotive Brake-System Solutions on Display at SAE 2014 Brake Colloquium & Exhibition

Share Article

Dow Corning Corporation, a global leader in silicone and silicon-based technology and innovation, offers proven lubrication solutions to improve brake-system performance and reliability, as well as to help control friction, wear and noise. These specialty lubricants are meeting challenging requirements across many vehicle segments, from the brake pedal to the pad.

Our lubrication solutions provide today’s braking systems with good materials compatibility, precise friction-control characteristics, high-load and slow-speed capacities, and reliable performance under typically demanding conditions.

Automotive design engineers are increasingly tasked with meeting challenging requirements for safety, fuel efficiency, comfort and sustainability. One way to meet those challenges is with proven, effective brake-system lubrication solutions. Lubricant technologies can help reduce brake drag for added fuel efficiency, while others can improve noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) control. Dow Corning, a global leader in silicones, silicon-based technology and innovation, is helping to provide exactly these solutions.

Molykote® brand Smart Lubrication™ solutions from Dow Corning can enhance performance, reliability and durability for automotive and commercial-vehicle braking systems – from the brake pedal to the pad. One of the leading examples is Molykote® G-3407 Caliper Pin Grease, an OEM-approved synthetic lubricant that solved caliper pin corrosion and wear problems for a major Tier 1 manufacturer of brake systems. Other problem-solving lubricants are especially well-suited for new design requirements on today’s vehicles for brake-pad backing plates and retainer clips, brake boosters/actuators, brake pedal systems, and brake-pad friction control.

Prime examples of these Dow Corning brake-system lubrication solutions will be showcased at the upcoming SAE 2014 Brake Colloquium and Exhibition, which will take place October 5 through 8 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport in Burlingame, California. Dow Corning brake lubrication specialists will be available to discuss the proven success of the company’s various lubrication technologies for advanced automotive braking systems.

Attendees at this premier Society of Automotive Engineers technical event are invited to discuss their brake lubrication needs at the Dow Corning exhibit in Booth 405. Featured brake-system applications and lubrication options also are detailed on the company’s website; visit to learn more.
